retroThanks to WOM World Nokia, I now own a cool retro Nokia CITYMAN 450.  If your not sure what one of these is, well, cast your minds back to 1987, when Nokia released the first handheld Mobile phone, breaking away from those big heavy batteries, or car fitted phones. 

Nokia’s Mobile phones got a big publicity boost in 1987, when Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev was pictured using a Nokia Cityman to make a call from Helsinki to his communications minister in Moscow.  This led to the phone’s affectionate nickname of the “Gorba”.

Ok, the Cityman that WOM World Nokia sent me, is just that little bit more special.  Its an actual anti-theft device, which houses your treasured N97, consealing it from theives eyes.  Who would want to steal a brick like this?  Unless of course, there are Retro phone collectors hiring hitmen to hunt down these classics.!  Checkout the photos on the next page.
